bumpI think "I-banking vs. biglaw" would make a great discussion...I'd go with biglaw...lower pay, but better hours, more interesting work (IMO...I'm not bad with numbers, but I don't find the idea of making pitchbooks over and over again very appealing), broaded career opportunities (although more money as an IB can = investment/VC opportunities and despite the valuable connections IB affords, I don't think it prepares someone for a direct jump to upper management in a different industry)
Does anyone have any insight on whether the AdComm would look upon my MBA favorably, perhaps to mitigate my 3.3ish GPA from a Top-5 undergrad school? Any help appreciated--I know that usually attorneys wish they had gone to b-school, but...I would be going into this with my eyes wide open, having worked at huge NYC corporate law firm.
My biggest concern honestly is not the debt. It's having kids. Fertility rates start dropping around age 28, and freefall at age 34, so I am going to be building my career at the same time I want to pop out kids. Somehting's gotta give, and I know that in biglaw, it's kids. Ouch. That's scary.
